BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A group of settlers injured a local Palestinian official in the south Hebron hills on Saturday after attacking him with a rock, a local peace group said Monday.

"On Dec. 28, a group of settlers attacked Palestinians who were plowing a field in the South Hebron Hills village of At Tuwani. Hafez Huraini, a member of the South Hebron Hills Popular Committee, was injured in the attack," Operation Dove said in a statement.

Huraini told the group that five settlers from the illegal outpost of Havat Maon, four of whom were children, attacked the villagers as they worked on their land.

One of the settlers approached Huraini and hit him over the head with a rock.

Residents from at-Tuwani gathered and managed to force the settlers away, but they continued to throw rocks at the villagers before finally leaving the area.

The attack took place at 2.45 p.m. and Israeli forces arrived in the area at 4.15 p.m., by which time Huraini was at a hospital in Yatta receiving treatment.

"This is resistance: to go daily to your land. We are protesting every day, every night," Huraini said.

In November, Operation Dove said the illegal outpost of Havot Maon was expanding at a "phenomenal" rate.

Home to around 200 settlers, the outpost is one of the most violent and radical in the occupied West Bank.

Bad move. You don't attack the officials of your own puppet government with rocks. You're supposed to pretend to respect them. Sometimes Israel is not only evil, but also stupid.

'One of the settlers approached Huraini and hit him over the head with a rock.' Sort of a metaphor for 'negotiations' with Israel in general.
